Losing a loved one in death is never easy, because it's unnatural; it's something no one gets used to. However, the Bible promises us a time when we can see our dead loved ones again, here on earth. John 5:28, 29 said there will be a resurrection. For more info, visit JW.org to find an article on this subject .
